Review: UNE Skin-Matt Foundation (Sin Binned!)

White tube of foundation

I bought this from my local Superdrug when UNE was still fairly new – absolutely ages ago now, I really should have reviewed it before! It was one of those products I really wanted to like, so I guess that’s why; I kept wanting to try it again to make sure of my opinion. Sadly though, this foundation is the worst I have ever tried. Ever. And that’s saying something!
Honestly, I’ve never tried a foundation that had such a totally disgusting finish on my skin; it looked dull, dry, the wrong tone…it seemed almost as though I could see the bits of pigment on my skin, and it was terrible. I had to wipe it off immediately, and I was really upset that I’d wasted so much money (it is a little expensive for a Superdrug job!) on something completely unusable. If the colour had been correct, I might have tried mixing it with something else, but even though it looked like the right shade, there was something off about it.
To be honest, that’s kind of it – pretty short review coming from me! But there isn’t a single good thing about this product. It isn’t even cheap. Oh wait – I remembered one thing; I got a free UNE mini kabuki brush with it. That still, after countless washings, sheds like crazy and leaves me with a faux moustache if I’m not careful!

Not good. Not at all. 1 star. * See, I can’t even be bothered to find a 1-star image for this foundation.

New Look!

I’ve changed my theme, as I’m sure is obvious – I kept the orangey/pinky colours that were in the old one, as I really liked them, but I just think that this layout is a lot more easy to read and appropriate for the kind of posts that I do. I wouldn’t mind something a bit more flashy really, but any themes that have preset images or designs just seem a little unprofessional to me…I don’t know what it is!

Anyway, hope you like the new theme and layout!
